[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yes...F stop is correct. This is a daylight shot, made to look like a nighttime shot. This is artwork. Heavy Post Processing. HDR treatment of a single image, brightness lowered down with a blue tinge added. I added the moon and the reflections on the water. I muted the colors because at night colors are muted are they not? B-)

Excellent PP work has produced an atmospheric image with useful and informative note.


Hi Linda, You really did a great job with this one. Keeping the moon slightly hidden from view was a nice touch.Fiona

Hi Linda
I did a similar 'trick' on a sunset taken in Sri Lanka - it's on my page labelled 'End of Day'. I managed to fool all my friends and had to show the original image to convince them otherwise.
I like your photograph by the way. ;-)

Hi. Is it necessary to tell the viewer that, quote "This is artwork" LOL, whether it is art or not is in the eye of the beholder not the artist.

Olá Londa
you like to make this...and you did it very well..I like yje composition ( a dream) and the blue tonality.
Um abraço
